Set up by two people with a passion for and years of experience in supporting the elderly community. Community Smiles is a licensed, professional transport service that provides support to vulnerable people, specialising in people with dementia.
We offer trips to hospital appointments, relatives in care homes, the shops, holiday destinations and much more. Unlike other services made up of volunteers, our team comprises of fully-trained drivers, who undergo testing to ensure a great quality of care.
As a non-profit organisation, we seek to ensure that any profit is used to pay for journeys for people who are unable to pay the commercial rate. We allow people to donate “smiles”, which are converted into journeys, sponsor driver training and also gift journeys to others.
We are part of the community, working for the community.
Going on trips and appointments
From days out in the countryside to sitting in on doctor and hospital appointments, we help people get around in a pleasant and respectful way.
Giving back independence
Working with courtesy and integrity, our team help people to get on with their routines, such as going shopping and visiting relatives.
Here to care when others can’t
When all a person needs is someone to talk to, we provide companionship and a trip out to break up the week.
What people think of our service...
It's very comforting to know my mother is being driven by people who appreciate her condition and have the patience and understanding needed.
A great driving service from a caring team.
